David Tom, Founder and Registrar of the Historic Trans-Am Registry, presents a stunning tribute to the cars of Trans-Am racing- the only book in print on the popular race series, referred to by David Friedman as “the pony car wars”. This beautiful hardcover book contains many photos never-before-seen in print, with high-gloss pages and color photos aplenty.
Features include insight and interviews from the original car builders and teams who maintained the cars, and a full history of Trans-Am racing from the very first event in 66 at Daytona.
The Cars of Trans-Am tracks the evolution of the sport from the sedans of 66, to the race cars of 67, to the muscle cars of 68. It covers the engineers and builders, as well as the changes that were produced in car design throughout the race history, and includes a section on vintage event venues from mid 80s to late 90s and beyond.
Wonderfully executed and very comprehensive, this book is full of the memories and the thrills that made this race series so great. The perfect book for any race enthusiast, this is one you’ll be proud to show off to your friends. If you like cars and you like speed, this book is for you!
